About us

Offering both budget and luxury tour options, Hakuna Matata Safaris is a unique East African company that operates to all national parks, game reserves, mountains and island destinations in Rwanda, Uganda, Congo, Burundi, Kenya and Tanzania. The Company was established in 2008 by Kennedy N Rwema a young enthusiastic entrepreneur with a vision to make East Africa the most popular tourist destination on the continent.

At Hakuna Matata safaris, We arrange African wildlife safaris and ecological tours for individuals, couples, families, special interest groups and corporate clients who are interested in Eco Safaris and are moved to protecting the environment.

We Know that for most people, an African safari is a “trip of a lifetime;” hence, our priority is to offer a nurturing experience that is leisurely paced, enjoyable and provides you with the time for soul searching and reflection in addition to giving you quality time for big game viewing and relaxation.

Hakuna Matata Safaris Company is fully owned and operated by Locals with the main Office in Nairobi/ Kenya and representing offices in Rwanda and Congo DRC.

We look forward to working with you to provide you with the best and most memorable  holiday possible like many of our satisfied customers over the years.

More About Us

Ours Cars

We operate with 4×4 safari vehicles and strive to ensure the best combination of comfort and effectiveness. Vehicles are equipped with six individual and comfortable seats, guaranteeing a large sliding window seat for each guest and pop-up roofs, offering excellent views and giving our guests fantastic opportunities for safe and undisturbed photography while on game drives. In addition, a seventh seat is available next to the guide.

All our vehicles are fitted with the necessary safari equipment, safari fridge, powered by the car battery, for keeping your drinks cold and refreshing. 220 Volt electric sockets for battery chargers ensure that you won’t miss capturing any of the special moments you will experience on your safari, as well as a basic first-aid kit.

Our safari driver/guides are well trained for handling vehicles under extreme 4×4 and safari conditions and put the safety of our clients first at all times. Transport arrangements are ensured and facilitated to the very last detail on behalf of the client, e.g. when it is necessary to take a domestic flight, if we cannot collect you personally, transport will be arranged to and from your accommodation.

We only use four-wheel-drive vehicles (4×4) – custom built safari Land Cruisers 4×4 – exclusively on all our  safari programs.

Safety First!

Most of Our Safari Cars  are equipped with all possible safety features – fire extinguishers, First Aid kits and seat belts. They have specially designed fuel tanks to allow economical use of diesel during long journeys.

In Addition

As there is limited space available in the luggage compartment, we ask all our guests to restrict their luggage to 15 kg in weight. Luggage that won’t be needed on safari can be stored in our office in Nairobi or Kigali.
